Can Propaganda Save the NDC from the Woyomegate Scandal?

What is Propaganda, one may ask? "Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position. As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda, in its most basic sense, presents information primarily to influence an audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or uses loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience to further a political agenda" - Wikipedia.

The idiocy of some NDC activists in attempt to exonerate Alfred Agbesi Woyome from blame beats my gumption. Their explanations have always been as illogical as their integrity has ebbed. They have no shame and are still ignorant about the possible disastrous repercussions the confirmed thievery by Woyome can have on their party and Ghana as a whole.

People like Richard Quashiga; the NDC's National Propaganda Secretary still feels he can spew crap to justify the maliciously masterminded payment of GHC 58 Million to Woyome. When asked for his views on the payment, he wades into an unchartered terrain where his brains are comparatively diminutive enough to guide him out when he is stuck. Instead of sharing his views in support of, or against, Woyome's success at defrauding Ghana, he rather questioned the integrity of Kennedy Agyapong and Nana Akuffo-Addo. He retorted, "I wonder why the Assin-North MP has not come public with evidence that he is not a wee smoker or someone who deals in drugs; as well as providing evidence to show that his flagbearer Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo is not a womanizer or someone who also deals in drugs" What a nutter! His response with the further allegations he made that an arrested 'Limping Man' Fingers NPP MP in MV Benjamin Cocaine Saga" is tactical diversionary act of consummate savagery on the intelligence of Ghanaians.

You are not stupid and should not forcibly become a liar when elected a National Propaganda Secretary of your party but Richard Quashigah is. He still believes with his nonsensicalities and probable senseless NDC collusion with the said "Limping Man" to blackmail Kennedy Agyapong will compel Ghanaians to forget about the NDC's complicity in the Woyome crime to interest themselves in the lies they are cooking. The annoyance of Ghanaians will ensure the dragnet is cast further and afar until it catches the biggest fish (President Mills) for entry into the "Guinness Record Book" Even a child in Ghana knows that the NDC had intended to dupe Ghana but only used the less intelligent but greedy Alfred Agbesi Woyome to attain their deplorable objective.

Former President Rawlings has always said, "The Atta Mills' NDC government is full of greedy bastards and bootlickers". People are echoing what he says about the party he founded with his sweat and blood; in every corner of Ghana until the wrath of Ghanaians descend heavily upon the NDC to quench the already flickering life out of them. Once a cat-thief finds a new and easy way of plundering the coffers of Ghana, nothing will be gargantuan enough to obstruct them. I wonder where, why and how President Mills decided to fill his government with all these once cat-thieves. Look what they are doing to Ghana.

If I had my own way, I would suggest Ghanaians drown these greedy bastards at sea by tying them up with weights and dropped into the sea but it is barbaric for Ghanaians to go that far. However, the on-going investigations and arrests should deepen to bring even Atta Mills to justice. I am not tribalistic but I cannot stand the thievery the Ewes in Atta Mills' government are inflicting on Ghana while the President sits lame and dumb. Carl Wilson emerges to steal cars in broad daylight with the tacit support of Alex Segbefia, the Deputy Chief of Staff. Alex Segbefia fraudulently renovates his Dad's house with hundreds of thousands of Ghana New Cedis. Baby face Okudjeto Ablakwah also has his unpalatable problems. Agbesi Woyome has swindled Ghana of Millions of Ghana New Cedis. Koku Anyidoho talks rubbish as if he has no brains in his bulky skull. He is piling up weight from the likely illegal money he is making. The list is long and goes on. With all these in glare view of President Mills, he is as mute as a deaf, dumb and blind person is. I am sorry I do not intend to insult physically challenged persons but to explain how incompetent President Mills is.

More grease to the elbows of Kennedy Agyapong. I wish all Ghana MPs were as bold, dynamic and persons with the love of the country at heart as the MP of Assin North. Kennedy, you are the People's candidate for saving Ghana from the clutches of the NDC thievery.
